Newfangled Mill Wizard / Remove 'tool change' bug
« on: December 01, 2013, 04:56:19 PM »
I was modifying a job file and need to delete the first tool change and the associated cut. I can delete the cut, but the tool change refuses to be deleted. I also can't move that tool change down in the list, or move another one to the top of the list. Seems the top tool change is 'special' when it shouldn't be.

Job file attached.

Newfangled Mill Wizard / Arc slot problems
« on: November 25, 2013, 07:27:51 PM »
The attached job file (Burley boss 500end) shows up an issue when I try to change the arc slot settings. They are currently start -90 and arc 180, but that puts it on the wrong side, I really need start 90, arc 180, but changing the start locks up the program.

In addition, when playing around with settings the second and third attached files (90 and 270) shows what I think is a problem. If I have start 0 and arc 90 it goes from 3 o'clock to 12 o'clock, but with start 0 and arc -90 it should go 90 degrees from 3 o'clock to 6 o'clock, but instead it goes from 3 to 6 via 270 degrees.


General Mach Discussion / Key grabber problem
« on: November 25, 2013, 06:22:38 PM »
I've been using the Key Grabber app to interface a Logitech 3 joystick with my mill. All had been working fine, until I somehow lost the config file. I rebuilt it, and reassigned keys etc. I use the small thumb wheel (not sure what it's really called) as the z-axis control, with x and y being the main axes of the joystick.

The problem is that whenever I send z up (or maybe also down-can't remember) a single pulse gets sent to the x axis and it jumps whatever distance a single arrow key push would have sent x. Why is this happening and how do I  stop it?

At first I thought that the key assigned to move x (buttons on the joystick just above the Z controller) was accidentally getting pushed, but I've been really careful to insure that's not the case.


Newfangled Mill Wizard / Code won't run
« on: November 12, 2013, 03:04:36 PM »
The attached job file and associated G-code fails to load and run in Mach.

At the line where the tool changes to Tool 12, there is a status message that says "nested comment found, Block = M06 T12"

Whats the problem here? It ran up to that point and went thru a couple of tool changes?

Side question (since I can't run the code and I'm just getting used to these wizards), does it stop at the tool change so I can manually change the tool and can I reset Z then to adjust for tool length, since the tool table gives me no length values. I have NMTB 30 holders, so I can measure and fix all the tool lengths, but there's no way I see to enter that into the table.

Newfangled Mill Wizard / G-Code stops in Mach
« on: November 06, 2013, 11:50:58 PM »
This job file (and subsequent G-Code file) stops at line 30 in Mach with no explanation. I can single step thru it and it seems fine, but won't run.

Also-so far I've been running on a computer that isn't hooked up to the mill to check the code etc., but all through this process, the Mach DRO's don't show any changes as I mock run or single step thru the file. Is this normal for a setup that isn't actually connected to a mill?


Newfangled Mill Wizard / Feature request
« on: October 19, 2013, 12:19:47 AM »
Just starting to use these new Wizards, which I like a lot by the way and have a feature request. In all the times when one gets to select the origins, the choices always seem to be center, NE, NW, SE, SW, but it would be nice to also have N, S, E, W as options. This would make lining up and linking different sections of code much more flexible.


Newfangled Mill Wizard / Bad Rectangle code
« on: October 19, 2013, 12:12:52 AM »
Attached are shots of an attempt to cut a simple rectangle, but the extra code (circle in the upper right) is not correct and looks like a bug to me. It is specified for a .5" cutter.


Newfangled Solutions Mach3 Wizards / 2.80?
« on: November 28, 2008, 12:18:58 PM »
On one of the forums I thought I saw a message that there was an update to 2.80. I can't find that anywhere. Is it real?
